This collection of contemporary romantic poetry explores the many joys and agonies of the miracle of love. It was written for lovers of all persuasions and for those who know enough to treasure love, no matter with whom it is shared-man with woman, man with man, or woman with woman. Author Jason S. Nino explores love as a human emotion, with all of its turmoil, longing, false hope, disappointment, and exuberance, from the perspective of a young man's expressive heart. When it comes to love, there is no holding back. All feelings are communicated with wondrous expression. The power of this book is in its ability to move the reader's emotions through its imagery, words, and art. Since he was old enough to put pen to paper, Jason knew he wanted to write poetry. As early as the first grade, Jason won a county competition for creative story writing. He began writing poetry as a child and grew accustomed to putting his thoughts and emotions into his poems. He is a sensitive, imaginative, and emotional poet. He reaches into the depths of his heart, explores deeply, and utters every possible feeling that one can experience under the spell of love.
